👋 I am Bodo, Father of a 4-year-old, working as a Full-Stack Freelancer in Berlin.

I am a CODA, and I'm the admin of

Besides that, I have two other bigger side projects: and

Okay Microsoft Teams, can you please tell me who of the 30 people in this chat exactly is out of office? Maybe a link in that line would be nice? Pretty please? This is *not* helpful.

Climate change example picture. There was water here a year ago. One meter. Just gone. 😥

Another proof humans are stupid: everyone fights for the parking place next to the entrance at IKEA. You all really want to haul the stuff you bought all the way from the exit to there, hm? Meanwhile, I am parking at the exit with tons of space around me 😅

Starting 2024 all new cars sold in Europe need a system that limits the car to the allowed speed. If you ever tried to drive not faster than the allowed speed in Berlin, you will know this will be an interesting experiment 🤪.

I think I will now add 15% to my hourly rate if you force me to use Microsoft Teams 🤪

Now I would really love to see what the supreme court would think of a teacher doing a muslim prayer.

For sure one of the best german comics this year: „Trip mit Tropf“.


Whats needed: a device like TV-be-gone but for Bluetooth boxes 😊

Do I know someone here in Berlin who could print me this little thing:
